On these custom bikes can you take them to any reputable shop to get them serviced? I'm guessing that they use parts from many different companies to build the bike. How do you get replacement parts and know what vendor the part came from?

I'm dumb when it comes to choppers. With the metrics and sportbikes you can go into any dealer and get a part for your make / model. How does it work with these?

i think the normal price new is around 30K new. he got it for a lil over 15K.
he said it was so cheap cuz when the original owner bought it, that person only made one payment and then the bank repo'ed it. he got it with about 300 miles on it.
